Caring for an ill or incapacitated loved one at home can turn quite daunting before long that it eventually takes a toll on the caregiver physically and emotionally. With a family of your own to take care of, a job, and personal errands to run every day, you have a lot on your plate. At some point, you may realize that the only practical option left for you is to hire an in-home care provider. Before you reach for the phone and consider the arrangement, be aware of your own responsibilities when you entrust the care of your loved ones to others: 1. Be clear about your elderly’s needs and preferences. It’s frustrating to work without being given sufficient instructions, right? Your in-home care provider would need clear instructions from you, so be specific about the type of care your loved one would need and expect from the caregiver.
